Tessa Gourin is Jack Nicholson's teenage daughter, and she's in a bit of hot water in NYC. According to a report by the New York Post, Gourin was busted by police on New York's Upper East Side. The 17-year-old was arrested, charged with criminal possession of marijuana, and ticketed. Daddy Jack cannot be happy with this news. Back in the day, Nicholson was a bit of a partier -- and it seems the apple did not fall far from the Hollywood tree.
Is the young woman out of control? Page Six reports that young Tessa was actually taken into custody on East 79th Street last Friday afternoon. So far, no official comment on the arrest by Tessa Gourdin's extremely famous father or from her mom, NYC broker Jennine Gourin. In case anyone is wondering, Tessa is the product of an affair her mother had with Jack years ago.
Hopefully Tessa Gourin has learned a valuable lesson: Even if your parents are highly successful, or in her case, if one of them is ridiculously famous, that doesn't mean you're above the law. Marijuana is still illegal, and even teens on the posh Upper East Side of New York aren't immune from the long arm of the law.
